GOLD DIGGING AT THE NUMERALLA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 11 April 1861

GOLD DIGGING AT THE NUMERALLA. A Mr. Robert Goodwin called here a few days ago, and stated that he along with others are busily at work on the Numeralla river, about three miles below the former diggings at the Big Badger. They are all earning fair wages. Two persons; without the slightest difficulty, can earn from £2 to £8 per week per man, being much better wages than can be earned at any other description of out-door labour at the present time. The gold is fine and scaly, and fetches £8 15s. per oz. Provisions are cheap and plentiful. BulnANooN? DxooIxos.--,Vo hear that a new rush has taken place to some ground be twoen Lambing Flat and Spring Creek, but on th.e opposite side of Stringybark Range. It is favourably spoken of. The gold there is of a different appearance to that found on the other parts of the diggings, being more shotty. Rushes are of almost every day occurrence, and they all turn out more or less rich, evi dencing that the whole tract of land for many miles, in ev...

Metropolitan. Sydney, April 8, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 11 April 1861

(From= our . City Correspondent.) Sydney, April 8, 1861. The Privilege Committee will present the As- J -serfibly to-morrow its report on the alleged insult passed :on it by Sir Alfred Stephen. They held meetings on Saturday and this morning, and again to-morrow morning to determine on their report. The witnesses who have been examined are the Attor- I ney-General, Mr. Dalley, and the two c representatives of the morning journals. . In conversation, you will find many here who are too ready to pooh, pooh, the affair, and to endeavour to invest it with an air of ridicule; but for my owu part, I consider it a subject deserving of comment, by the whole press- of the colony. An opportunity is afforded of impressing on the minds of young men, that the Legislature is a sphere of public useful ness, not a butt for ridiculous satire-and that' their entrance into will raise iiot sink .them 1 in public estimation. Moreover, electorates may be taught the solemn duty they have. to perform, and ...

-0 TUESDAY, APRIL 2.. IN the Legislative Assembly, the Speaker took the chair at.twenty-eight minutes past three o'clock. Mr. Cowper, ih reply to a question from Dr. Wilson, said that a telegram, datedMarch 31, had been received by the Secretary for Lands from Chief Commissioner Cleote, stating that five hundred Chinese had been replaced at Blackguard Gully-that a large meeting had been held at Spring Creek that afternoon, 'at which strong language was used, and a deter mination expressed of driving away the Chi nese. Patrols had been out all day round the Chinese camp fixing the boundary, which had been marked out higher, than that recommend ed by the diggers. Mr. Cowper was, therefore, of opinion that little more would be heard of disturbances at Lambing Flat. Mr. Ryan took the oaths and his seat as member for the electoral district of the .Lach lan.

EASTER AT GININDERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 11 April 1861

EASTER AT GININDERRA. From a Correspondent. IT having been determined by the "powers that be," to celebrate Easter Monday by a Cricket Match; at an early hour on that day a rather large number of those who profess the "noble game,'' assembled at Gininderra. There being more than sufficient present to form two Elevens, it was arranged that eleven of the Queanbeyan District Club should enter the field against seventeen of all comers. By referring to the scoring-book I find the match entered as between the Duntroon and Ginin- derra clubs, that is hardly correct, as, indepen- dent of "all comers," having one of the best Gininderra bats upon their side, the remain- der were not all Duntroon men; nor can it be Gininderra against Duntroon, as four of that side were Gundaroo men, although members, I believe, of the Q.D.C.C. But if I am, or was, in any doubt about the correct name of the match, there was a facetious individual present who settled the difficulty at once by naming it "Queanbey...
